"Smart" devices, appliances, glasses, watches, clothing and numerous other items have flooded the market in recent years. The global market for the smart clothing sector alone is expected to reach $2 billion by the end of this year. One of the reasons for the technological strides is the advances in technical textiles. Smart fabrics must be able to conduct electricity, as well as be flexible, breathable and comfortable for the wearer. Those specs have proven difficult until recently. A group of international researchers tested the use of polymer nanofiber composite nonwovens that were produced through the process of electrospinning. Their research yielded a bendable and breathable fabric with metal-like electrical conductivity. While electrospinning has been used to manufacture nonwovens for many years, its application to smart clothing is revolutionizing this new technology.
